YSL Kiss & Love Palette Review, Swatches, Photos

by Tavia

Hello beauties!

YSL Kiss & Love Holiday 2015 Palette is part of YSL Kiss & Love Holiday 2015 Collection (info, photos) and one of the most glamorous Christmas palettes. The palette is available in a limited edition and its gorgeous golden packaging with red lips layered all over will make quite an impression on everyone that will receive it as a gift. Since it’s custom that YSL holiday collections are not sold in Romania, I wanted to get my hands on this palette no matter what as I admit the packaging got me sold.



UK Launch Date – 2 November 2015 at Selfridges

U.S. Launch Date – Now at Nordstrom, Sephora and online @yslbeautyus.com

YSL Kiss & Love Palette ($95.00 / £59.00 for 4 x 1 g/ 0.03 oz – 2 x 1.4 g / 0.05 oz – 1 x 3.8 g / 0.13) contains 4 powder eyeshadows, two lip colors and one powder blush. The packaging is luxurious and resembles a romantic notebook embossed with the iconic Yves Saint Laurent lips. This palette offers a classic combinations of golden nudes with a shimmer metallic finish that will make your makeup stand out  and emphasize your entire look during the holiday season.

YSL Brown Eyeshadow is medium-dark grayish brown with gold shimmer and a pearl shimmery finish. The formula doesn’t feel so smooth and silky to the touch, not very powdery but I could feel more of that shimmer finish. It applies well and blinds easily but the color is not very pigmented. It has a light to medium opacity, with a slightly buildable coverage up to a medium color, nothing to intense.

YSL Gold Eyeshadow is a very light gold with golden shimmer particles and a pearl finish. It has more of powdery felling when I swatched it and the formula appears to be a bit dry. The color has a light coverage, doesn’t look rich or intense so it’s more like a touch of light yellow to add luminosity.

YSL Silver Eyeshadow is light silver with a touch of gold and a shimmer finish. The formula is soft and silky and the best compared to all the other shades. It applies on smoothly, blends easily while the shade has a medium opacity.

YSL Champagne Eyeshadow is a light golden copper with warm undertones and a pearl finish. The fomula is somehow smooth but not as silky and creamy like the silver color. It adheres well onto the skin and it has a good color payoff.

YSL Pure Red lipstick is a medium warm pure red with a subtle glow. It applies easily on the lips, without sinking or emphasizing lip lines and it looks good even on light skin tones. It has a medium opacity, nothing to rich or too extreme, just a perfect pure red for a classic holiday makeup look.

YSL Light Pink lipstick is light pink with a natural sheen. This color is perfect for a subtle, natural or day to day makeup look. It glides smoothly across the lips, changing the lip color but without being too pigmented.

YSL Doux Corail Blush is a light delicate coral with warm undertones and a subtle glow.

I personally don’t like the mix of powder and cream formulas in one palette, I know some beauty lovers don’t mine, but I would preferred to be somehow separated or at least the lip creams to have a cover to protect them from the powders.

The colours are beautiful and the packaging divine – but I would forgo the glamorous packaging if YSL concentrated on getting the product right. For the price – the eye shadows should have been perfect. These are dupable colours that most would have in their stash, so to sell the product it is important to make them perfect. The red lipstick colour is lovely. But like you, I prefer my lip and eye/cheek colours to be separate.
What a shame about this lovely looking beauty item that it really doesn’t deliver. Thank you so much for your honest review.
